Minor Skin irregularities
Minor Skin irregularities are the most common cosmetic problems of skin. They increase in number, variety and size with age. These superficial irregularities are usually benign and can be treated by non-invasive methods rapidly, without the need of anesthesia.
In Tulip Laser Clinic we use a high frequency machine in which without penetrating into skin, it removes these minor skin irregularities. These irregularities are included but not limited to skin tags, cherry angiomas, fibromas , milia, sebaceous hyperplasias, telangiectasias (broken capillaries) and hyper pigmented (age) spots.
The procedure starts with applying topical numbing agent to numb the area. Treatment causes minimal discomfort and may require more than one treatment. Treated area will form a small crust which sheds in 5 to 7 days for most individuals. Mild redness will fade out in three weeks.
Each case will be treated individually based on their condition.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (also known as DPN) is characterized by small brown or black spots on the skin of the face, neck, chest, and back. Some people with dermatosis papulosa nigra have a few isolated spots while others have hundreds of spots. The spots may be flat or hang off the skin like a skin tag. The spots are neither cancerous nor medically concerning, but they may be irritating or cosmetically undesired. DPN occurs most frequently in black skin tone and dark-skinned Asians. Although dermatosis papulosa nigra is not a dangerous condition, some patients choose to have the spots removed for cosmetic reasons. The condition generally worsens with age, and the size
and number of spots do not decrease without treatment.
People who are considering treatment for dermatosis papulosa nigra should have realistic expectations and keep in mind that they may need multiple sessions of treatments to reach optimal results. the goal of treatment should be to minimize the appearance of spots rather than to remove them completely. Besides, as DPN occurs mostly in darker skin tone patients, treatment is more complicated because they are at higher risk of developing scar and pigmentation defects (white discoloration or darkening of the skin) tfollowing treatment.
Broken Capillary or Telangiectesia
Broken Capillary or Telangiectesia can be seen anywhere on the body. Broken Capillaries or Telangiectasia s are thread-like veins that result from dilation of blood capillaries. The veins are mostly apparent in people with dry, sensitive skin. Broken Capillaries are also known dilated capillaries, Spider Veins and Varicose Veins. Broken capillaries can be caused by a number of different reasons, and many of them may be preventable. Sun damage is a common culprit, but other factors like frequent use of harsh treatments, or vigorous scrubbing leads to excess dilation and further broken capillaries. Furthermore, internal source of inflammation may need attention. Other etiologic factors are age, genetics, hormones, and conditions that make the facial blood vessels excessively dilate as in alcoholism. To learn more and remove them call us. We can help.

Cherry angiomas appear as tiny pin-point red papules, especially on the trunk, and increase with age. Cherry angiomas are benign, very common skin growths that vary in size. Its reddish appearance is because of the collection of small blood vessels inside a cherry angioma.
